Some things trouble me about this movie. I think the acting was not an Oscar performance. I would like Ruben to have some trouble with controlling his voice level while he is talking. However, I liked his performance in a way. He handled to demonstrate his hopes about his condition and inner conflicts without directly showing it to us. I can say that Riz Ahmed did a great job at that.
I did not like the story. I like it when movies have strong beginnings and calm endings. But, in this movie, nothing happens in between (Act 2). I did not also understand what it really tries to tell the audience. I now it shows us the deaf community and how Rubert's life changes. But it was just so long and slow that you can't really follow after a moment. I did not also understand Lou. I do not want to give spoilers, but I just didn't understand what is her deal. I guess this movie just isn't for me.
